    It only took 300 advisors to change his mind...

    EXIT QUESTION: In order for SDI to work you have to have certain ground-based assets, such as radar stattions and launchers...AND they have to be near the potential target areas.

    As one of the emerging threats is from Iran and for the foreseeable future they will only have medium-ranged missiles that would place Europe in jeopardy well before the US, but subject to nuclear blackmail nonetheless. Naturally that means assets in Europe.

    But those assets agitate the Russians.

    Is Obama willing to antagonize the Russians to make good on his current promise to pursue missile defense?

    SDI does not work, will never work, and was never intended to work

    successful test missile defense - Yahoo! Search Results

    Of course this returns us to the prime question: why is Obama suddenly endorsing missile defense?

    It seems either A) your conclusions are mistaken about missile defense and are behind your candidate or B) your candidate is in error about missile defense or C) he's pandering for votes

    Ok, I was wrong, they got it to work once. I guess A is correct. But it was never meant to work:eusa_angel:
